is a good point and a big contrast with the president. >> let me tell you the results of three polls in three key states. one is michigan, mitt romney's home state among likely voter, barack obama, 52%, and mitt romney, 44%. and now virginia, your home state. barack obama, 50%, and mitt romney, 46%. then wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, obama, 51%, and mitt romney, 45%. a clear pattern now emerging in the three states that have particular resonance to you and paul ryan and mitt romney of a lead and momentum in the favor of the president. what are you guys going to do about this? >> well, i would rather be ahead than behind, but we were down by eight in the margin of error, but we have work to do.
